    I think it’s cute! I also do like the heart toppers 🙂 Maybe you could use actual candy hearts?

    I don’t particularly love it, but your poll options are very extreme! I think that the shape of the cake is fine, if that’s what you’re asking about. The things stuck all over it is a little amateurish to me.

    I don’t really care how it looks, I just care about how it tastes. 🙂

    I think it’s a cute idea! However, when I see those little candy hearts I strictly think about Valentine’s day. So you might want to keep that in mind.

    I’m not a fan, sorry. With the exception of the cake topper, it looks like it belongs at a kid’s birthday party–not a wedding. That said, I think candy hearts can work as a cake theme. Here are a few options that seem a bit more grown up, yet still whimsical: 

    You could even do a candy bar with sweethearts and sweetheart inspired cupcakes (but do a traditional wedding cake as well, even if it’s only for 2/3 of your guests): 

    We’re doing a smaller cake for 1/2-2/3 of our guests, gluten-free cupcakes and a dessert bar–so that people have options. A lot of people don’t like wedding cake anyway.

    I think its a little too cutesy for my taste. I love the heart themed cakes that CelticBeachBride posted though, especially the first one!

    I think the candy hearts would be better as a border around the bottoms of the layers rather than dotted all over…and if I did candy hearts, I wouldn’t do a heart-shaped cake. I’d do one or the other.

    @MeiFrancis:  This. I like the heart shape, but the candy hearts are little pre teen.
